Water is our most important nourishment and fundamental for good health. A human being consists of 70 % water. Water is the key to all bodily functions. Polluted water may pose a significant health risk.
The quality of drinking water, which has surface water as its source, is steadily deteriorating because of pollutants and acid rain. Even water is becoming acidic. At a pH of 6 crab's die, roach and salmon die at 4, and all fish die at a pH of 3. Bacteria, algae, chloroform (from chlorinating), nitrates and not least dangerous heavy metals, for example cadmium and aluminum, may have acidified poor quality water. These pollutants may come from factory discharges, agriculture, sewer pipes, water mains and acid rain.
The Importance of Water:
Did you know?
•Water is found throughout the body, both inside and outside the cells.
•Water is the key to all body functions.
•Our blood contains of 90 % of water.
•It is the water that carries nourishment to all living cells.
•Nourishment for body cells and waste products that are formed in connection with metabolism are transported with water
•Water must be so pure that the organism's various cells are not damaged.
•Under normal conditions, a person needs 1.5 - 2.5 litres per day.
•Water sustains all forms of life, in fact as humans our bodies are 70-90% water and most of the food we eat contains 70-90% water. All body fluids contain water. Water adjusts the body's temperature and, through urination and perspiration, is the main way to rid the body of toxins. Most of us do not drink enough water and are, therefore, dehydrated to some extent. For the body to function properly, it is imperative to be properly hydrated. Drinking the ionized alkaline water daily, assists the body in flushing out toxic, acidic wastes.
How ionized alkaline water helps:
First, let's look at pH or the degrees of acidity or alkalinity. pH ranges from 0-14 with 7 neutral, l-6 is acidic and above 7 basic or alkaline. Our body systems work to keep our blood and the fluids surrounding our cells slightly alkaline. The process of metabolism - the digestion and burning of our foods to produce energy - results in waste products. These waste products are acidic. If conditions were ideal, we'd get rid of our acidic wastes as fast as they formed through breathing and through the kidneys, bowels and skin.
Even under the best conditions a diet of largely fresh alkaline foods and regular exercise-acidic wastes build up in our bodies. Air pollution, processed foods, pesticides, and too much stress are adding to the toxic waste burden our systems struggle to eliminate from the body
"We age because we accumulate acidic waste products." - Sang Whang.
Many health experts agree that an overly acidic system also burdens the immune system and leads to disease.
How we can flush out these acidic wastes:
Drinking alkaline water daily assists the body to flush out the build-up of toxic wastes. To safely rid the body of stored acidic wastes, the alkaline water must contain, however, the original alkaline minerals that occur naturally in water.
In addition to the alkaline minerals, the alkaline water is rich in oxygen. Electrolysis separates water molecules into acidic water-positively charged hydrogen ions (H+) and alkaline water-negatively charged hydroxyl ions which have both an oxygen and a hydrogen atom (OH-). The alkaline water is, therefore, rich in oxygen.
Free radicals, disease and aging:
The disarming of free radicals is the second way in which alkaline water works to improve our health. You've probably heard about free radicals - they are mentioned frequently in health articles and in advertising for antioxidant supplements. Many health researchers point to free radicals as the cause of disease and aging. Antioxidants are, therefore, recommended to scavenge free radicals. Our bodies as part of the chemical reactions in cell respiration, although destructive, produce free radicals, naturally. The problem, today, is one of overproduction of free radicals. In response to an overload of toxic wastes, our bodies produce an abundance of free radicals. A free radical is an unstable, or active, form of oxygen with an urgent need to find an electron. They usually rip these electrons from cell membranes. When too many free radicals are produced, they attack the membranes of healthy cells. Over time, the damage shows up as a disease or the signs of aging.
A safe way to disarm free radicals:
•Alkaline ionized water, produces a safe source of free electrons to neutralize free radicals. Here's how the alkaline water works to disarm free radicals.
•It is a natural anti-oxidant.
•Enhances delivery of nutrients.
•Increases stable oxygen.
•Oxidation - Reduction Potential
The new way to prevent your body from oxidation
In nature, oxidation-reduction reactions occur incessantly. Irons rust, oils deteriorate, metal accessories discolor, foods rot, all because oxidation. Liver spots , freckles, etc., about which one may worry are also a result of oxidation, as also is atmospheric pollution, which is not other than a process or an outcome of oxidation reductions.
On the other hand, similar reactions also take place ceaselessly in human body. In chemical terms, oxidation-reduction reactions are exchanges of electrons, where electric potential is bound to arise. This electric potential is called "oxidation-reduction potential". In-vivo abnormalities of this potential seem to be heavily related to human health.
You may have heard of the term "active oxygen". Of course, oxygen is a vital substance, which is indispensable for not only humanity but also all the rest of life on this planet.
Be that as it may, oxygen in an active state has the property of violently reacting with other substances. Often it even destroys normal cell tissues (in a phenomenon partly reported to be cancerous). Moreover, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, ageing, etc., have much to do with in-vivid oxidation. Indeed, our environment has large varieties of oxidizing substances that adversely affect human organism.
Oxidizing substances, as such, may be the same but their actions vary with their environment, acidic or alkaline. Estimates are that in an acid environment, oxidizing substances act violently, where in an alkali environment they act moderately.
Minerals are ionized in a phenomenon chemically described as "ionization through emission of electrons". In other words, other substances have thereby been reduced chemically. In its long travel underground, natural spring water chemically reduces oxidizing substances below ground and emerges as mineral-rich reducing water. Its electric potential is stabilized at a level suitable for human body.
Drink Alkaline Ionized Water
Research in Japan since the 1950's and testimonials indicate the following conditions have been improved from drinking alkaline ion water: Arthritis, Chronic constipation, Diabetes, Chronic diarrhea Heartburn, Chronic fatigue, Indigestion, High blood pressure, Leg cramps, Poor circulation, Migraines, Nausea, Obesity Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, Stress.
